This, I believe, was my first character I animated for the John Lewis “The Bear And The Hare” ad.  He is supposed to be hanging a Christmas ornament, but we did not animate the ornaments because they were added in during the Stop-Motion stage.  It turned out pretty amazing to see a 2D character hanging a REAL ornament. 

If you haven’t seen the ad yet, you really should.  It was one of the coolest projects I had the pleasure to have worked on.  Check it out at: http://youtu.be/XqWig2WARb0 See if you can spot my little badger in there.  :)

Cccidentally posted this yesterday, but here it is.

Tuesday Tips - SHORTHANDS

It’s crucial to find ways to draw characters clearly and fast when storyboarding. Line mileage alone can become an impossible mountain to climb if you don’t simplify the way you draw characters. Leave all details aside and find the essence of a character. Shorthands are the gesture drawings of storyboarding. Specific characters have specific attributes that make them stand out. Sometimes it’s just the way they stand. Sometimes their hairstyle is unconventional. Find what’s key about a character and get rid of what’s common.
